Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
This file allows you to use the bon voyage vacation jewelry in CAS and any shop in any (sub)neighbourhood. With vacation jewelry i mean the rings, necklaces, bracelets,... that you can buy only in one particular vacation destiny. Obviously Bon Voyage is needed to get the jewelry.

To install simply put the file in your download directory. Your sims can buy all jewelry now in any shop. After you remove to file, your sims will still keep all jewelry they bought.

IMPORTANT NOTE: i also added a file with the collectible jewelry. These are jewels you can find by digging for treasures. This file works the same way. But i don't know what will happen if you try to dig for a treasure and find jewelry with this file installed. I tried to test it but my sims hardly ever find anything but bones and rocks. So use the file with the collectible jewelry at your own risk. Any feedback on this issue is welcome.
just to be clear: the vacation jewelry (non-collectible) is safe to use, only the collectibles are not, until further notice.

UPDATE: USE COLLECTIBLE JEWELRY WITH CAUTION: The collectible jewelry file will cause problems when you try to comb for seashells. I will leave it here but I suggest you only use it when creating a new sim and then take it out before you play with this sim on a beach lot. The sim will keep the jewelry as they are added to his/her 'wardrobe' but the jewelry won't be available in shops anymore. If you don't want to use it, you can still use the vacation jewelry (non-collectible) without any problems.

I think you only find jewelry when you are beach combing, shell earrings and colored glass necklaces, in all my digging I have never discovered jewelry, just sifting sand

Thanks for this by the by

I think you're right Wolf...you only find jewelry at the beach, (on the special beach portion of a beach lot), not digging for treasure (on regular soil). I have discovered jewelry at the beach & it's pretty cool. While digging for treasure, on the other hand, I mostly get rocks & bones...I have yet to get the treasure chest!

the collectible file only includes the collectible jewelry and the other file only includes the vacation jewelry. So if you want both in your game you need both files.

Thanks! However, there is a problem with the collectible jewelry file. With this file on, my game crashes everytime my sims find something when they comb for seashells. What could be the problem?

The game is trying to find jewelry that can by found on the beach. But i changed that jewelry so it's available in CAS. So the game is looking for something that isn't there anymore. I'm afraid you have to take it out to make the comb for seashells work again. Thanks for testing this.

I'm sorry for asking this, but if you can, please, take a small request ... I've been trying hard to create this and still with no results ... maybe I'm just that dumb ... will you please try and create a hack to increase the value of tips given to instrument players (up to 1000)? Believe me, I've given up after four weeks, and this is my last option ... Please help me! I will be extremely greatful to you, from now on!!!

I'm sorry but i have no idea how to do that. The only 'hacks' I've made hide clothing, hair, accesories or make them visible. I suggest you make your request to someone who already made a hack that modifies game behaviour.

i'm afraid it's a problem with the collectible jewelryfile. the game is trying to use collectible jewelry but since it's now available in CAS, it's not collectible anymore. And because there are no collectibles to be found, the game crashes.
Unfortunately i don't know how to fix this. I'm afraid you have to take out the collectible file to make it work again.

I'll update the first post to let people know. Thanks for the feedback and sorry i can't offer a proper solution.

I tried buying all of the jewlery for my Adult sims, and all that
they found were sea shells! But then, I tried making the children shift through the sand, and my game crashed. I'm really sorry that I have to take the collectable file out, as it stopped my game from lagging when my Adult sims found only shells.
Isn't there any way to stop my game from being such a Searching Fruitloop?
Curse you EAxis!

Great mod, by the way, Atreya!

I downloaded this awhile ago, but it made my game crash when my sims tries to comb for seashells. I deleted it from my folder, but the vacation jewellery still shows up in CAS and my game still crashes. Can anyone help?
